So why did health care professionals decide to go bowling just days after Spencer returned from Ebola-infected Guinea?"

    Q. My Sister’s Parenting: My sister has this idea that she shouldn’t confine her son to traditional gender stereotypes. Recently she started dressing him in feminine clothing. He is 4 years old and gets teased at his day care and has expressed many times how much he hates his dresses and pink tutus. She keeps telling him the other children are wrong to tease him and he should be proud of dressing that way. What can I say to her without insulting her parenting skills? A: Your sister’s behavior will not have your son embrace her ideals of gender fluidity,...

    In the recent months, I have been engaged in political debates with liberals mostly under the age of 40 (I am over the age of 40). These debates have taken place in person, via email and political discussion blogs. In each occurrence, I was contacted or confronted by the individuals who wanted to engage in discussions with me. I was personally contacted and invited to participate in discussions on a blog that repost some of my articles. However, after each round of discussions, I am saddened with the realization that our great country is in deep trouble if today’s young...

    Is it just me, or is there liberal rot taking place. When I used to teach my Intro to Econ course, I would tell my students to close their eyes and listen to the TV ads. Doing so creates a totally different impression from the ad. Today, both local and national TV ads have drawn from the Liberal playbook to sell products. So many of them now feature that one word: "deserve". You "deserve" better cable service. You "deserve" a high-end luxury car. You "deserve" legal service if you spilled hot coffee on yourself. Bull crap. Sorry, Bozo, you don't...

    While Francis I has nether denied not sought to change any doctrine, Cardinal Burke is correct. The pope has “done a lot of harm.” He has created confusion among the faithful and is soon going to have to speak with clarity on the unchanging truths of Catholicism. In his beatification of Paul VI on Sunday, Pope Francis celebrated change. “God is not afraid of new things,” he said, “we are making every effort to adapt ways and methods … to the changing conditions of society.” But among the social changes since Vatican II and Paul VI have been the West’s...

They lost. This week, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency injunction declaring that our movie deserved the same free-speech rights as a “traditional” (translation: old-guard liberal) news organization. “Rocky Mountain Heist,” produced by David Bossie’s Citizens United and directed by Jason Killian Meath, tells the story of how a wealthy quartet of liberal millionaires and billionaires in Colorado — known as...

But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best. “To spend thousands of dollars just making sure it hasn’t grown?” said Ms....

    Nothing in my journalism training, career, or credentials approves of the unfair manner by which TC PALM uses its power to endorse some candidates while refusing to cover in the news section the obvious failings of their darlings. The Patrick Murphy endorsement, while predictable, certainly cements in my mind the lack of fairness in journalism here on the Treasure Coast. An outstanding 18 page analysis of the 31 year old Democrat, done by ballotpedia.org, reveals this staggering statistic which our heavy handed editorialists will never tell you. “From 2011 to 2012, Murphy’s yearly net worth jumped from $205,682 to $3,185,011,...

    The most conservative and liberal names in America are Doyle and Natasha. Crowdpac, a nonpartisan group, focuses on how money and policy work in politics. The group scores all donors who have made two or more campaign contributions since 1980. Using that algorithm — and a cut-off of names with at least 1,000 donations made to avoid unusual names and outliers — Crowdpac built a tool to show how conservative or liberal first names are. You can enter your name in this tool here. (For example, “Katherine” is moderately liberal and people with this name are “less likely to contribute...

    he political momentum for a travel ban on West African nations continued to swell Thursday, but health and transportation experts were uniform in saying it wouldn’t stem the spread of Ebola — and could do more harm than good. That hasn’t stopped politicians and pundits — ranging from House Speaker John Boehner to former Obama press secretary Jay Carney — from calling for a travel ban. The appeal is obvious: It sounds like a no-brainer to build an infectious-disease moat around the U.S., blocking some flights and barring people who come from the countries suffering the worst Ebola outbreaks. But...

Few people thought the republic would last another 227 years, but it has. The Constitution's limits on government power helped create the most free and prosperous country on earth.... Sen. Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) asked President Obama's Supreme Court pick, Elena Kagan, "If I wanted to sponsor a bill and it said, Americans, you have to eat three vegetables and three fruits every day, does that violate the Commerce Clause?" Amazingly, Kagan wouldn't say, "Yes, of course!"...

    American Thinker ^ | October 12, 2014 | By Robert Klein Engler
    The English word “sacrament” has its roots in Latin and Greek. At one time the word meant, “a solemn and sacred oath.” Roman Catholics believe that there are seven sacraments which Christ instituted. These sacraments are visible rituals that are signs of God's presence. They are believed to channel God's grace to all those who receive them. The traditional seven sacraments are usually listed in the order in which they follow a human life from birth to natural death. They are: Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Confession, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Anointing the Sick. Over and against these traditional sacraments are...

    Liberalism is an ideology of parasites, hypocrites, grievance mongers, victims, and control freaks. Like a tick, liberalism latches onto a victim and sucks him dry. Of course, a single tick can’t gorge itself on so much blood that it does to a dog what liberalism did to Detroit. It doesn’t turn the different parts of the dog against each other. The tick doesn’t tell everyone he’s a victim and that the dog is greedy if he tries to scratch it off. You can’t be both a good Christian and a good liberal because they’re incompatible and liberalism makes no exceptions...

    How to explain the liberal embrace of cultural movements that presage cultural collapse even as they claim to be on the right side of history?

The examples are: homosexuality, Islam and immigration. I'm currently reading a review of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel paintings and the authors, Blech & Doliner, take pains to highlight the homosexual subculture that accompanied this great artistic flowering.

WFTV9 reports: Crist has changed parties and changed stances on gay marriage, abortion and medical marijuana. He said he will vote yes on Amendment 2. “I do support it,” Crist said. “Rick Scott opposes it; I don't know what else to tell you.” Critics think medical marijuana was pushed onto the ballot by Attorney John Morgan...

    A new study from the American Journal of Political Science indicates that different political affiliations may actually correspond with different body odors. The researchers, led by Brown University political scientist Rose McDermott, found that conservatives and liberals smell dissimilar. While the difference is small, it is apparently significant enough that we subconsciously prefer the scent of those who vote like we do. "It appears nature stacks the deck to make politically similar partners more attractive to each other in unconscious ways," the researchers wrote.Previous research has found a number of other political view correlations with unknown degrees of biological and...

    A lot of people assume the term “female misogynist” is an oxymoron. How can a woman be opposed to the fight to help women achieve equality? The sad fact of the matter is, as long as there has been feminism, there have been women who find it personally advantageous to reject feminism and instead argue for continuing social systems that perpetuate women’s inequality, male dominance, and even violence against women. (There were even plenty of women who were willing to argue against women’s suffrage back in the day.) Here is a list of nine women who have made a career...

    Democrats have reversed the partisan imbalance on the federal appeals courts that long favored conservatives, a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences for the law and President Obama’s legacy. For the first time in more than a decade, judges appointed by Democratic presidents considerably outnumber judges appointed by Republican presidents. The Democrats’ advantage has only grown since late last year when they stripped Republicans of their ability to filibuster the president’s nominees. Democratic appointees who hear cases full time now hold a majority of seats on nine of the 13 United States Courts of Appeals. When Mr. Obama took office, only...

    In light of the recent discussion on “The Future of Protestantism,” I thought I would post Machen’s take on church unity as he deals with this topic in his classic work, Christianity and Liberalism: We are not dealing here with delicate personal questions; we are not presuming to say whether such and such an individual man is a Christian or not. God only can decide such questions; no man can say with assurance whether the attitude of certain individual “liberals” toward Christ is saving faith or not. But one thing is perfectly plain—whether or not liberals are Christians, it is...

It’s not enough that the Justice Department is investigating the shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson, MO police officer. Now it’s opening up a “pattern and practice” investigation of the entire Ferguson police force. The big question: Is this Justice Department capable of conducting a fair and impartial investigation? The applicable federal law (42 U.S.C. §14141) makes it unlawful for any governmental authority “to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct by law enforcement officers … that deprives...

Known as the Bias Incident Report system , the online form does not specify the criteria for filing a report, nor does it explicitly define the word “bias.” Instead, students are pressured to submit a report anytime they believe they are encountering an incident of hate or bias — potentially opening the floodgates for students to report incidents without cause....

    The establishment press is working mightily to shield President Barack Obama from blame for, or even association with, decisions he has made and actions he has taken — unilaterally and with dubious constitutional authority in many instances. One particularly egregious example is Libya. When Obama decided on his own to engage in "kinetic miliitary action" to topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, the press was thrilled. Now, as will be seen after the jump, three stories from major establishment press outlets don't even contain Obama's name, or any direct reference to him. The press, in completely polar opposite treatment from that...

    No term in the American lexicon has impacted the national debate over the past few years as has "white privilege." The term initially sprung up in that great cradle of pointless conversation, left-wing academia, and has gone on to dominate the American political discussion with increasing furor in the years of the Obama Administration. Liberals assert that the causation of so many of the social inequities in our nation stem from the inherent privilege that white Americans enjoy in our society, as a result of our history and racial discrimination. As is the case, however, with nearly all liberal-progressive talking...

    Paul Krugman has once again decided to call a few “fools and knaves” who disagree with him by some nasty names. In fact, the Nobel Laureate’s habit of lashing out with vitriolic playground language is pretty well documented; and, quite frankly, it demonstrates an astounding lack of self-awareness when it comes from a Keynesian who has turned being wrong into a career option. But in this rare case, I might actually let his painfully ironic comments slide without condemnation.

    If liberals truly cared about the plight of today’s black community, they wouldn’t be “standing in solidarity” with a bunch of outraged looters in Ferguson, Missouri… They would be denouncing the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, and segregation. They would be burning the homes of gang members. They would be fighting for the single black mother who is facing up to three years in prison for deciding to defend her life with a firearm. In short… They would be rampaging against the morally bankrupt hustlers of victimhood and dependency. Or, to put it another way, they would be voting...

    Hollywood’s enemies of American freedom are busy undermining the life we have built and hope to keep. These social parasites, who have the wherewithal to live anywhere after they complete the destruction of America, are opening their checkbooks to the Democrats who will carry out the end game for America if we let them. People like Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Barbra Streisand, whose personal lives have nothing whatsoever in common with our own, are pouring out their “One percenter” fortunes to force us to live as they deign we should live. In an effort to save Democrat...

    The world of feminism is a strange one. Some of us might see the cause as lost and irrelevant, while others might see it as an essential part of equality. There may have been a time when feminism served its purpose in North America, but it's difficult to justify its need today, especially since most of the archaic laws that barred women from doing basic things have been abolished. Since women won the right to vote and become CEOs, modern feminism seems to have deteriorated into mindless sophistry. From advocating for free contraception to complaining about "cat calling" and exaggerating...

    INDIANAPOLIS - An eye-opening art exhibit on gun violence is about to open at the Central Library downtown. Artist James Pate and exhibit organizers expect the art to spark some serious conversations because of what it shows. "It just makes you think a little bit and sparks your thought process," said Chaz Holder. Holder is one of a group of Crispus Attucks High School students who got a first look at the provocative exhibit. The students' visit was also training for grown-ups who will serve as exhibit tour guides. "The hope is to engage the youth in the community in...

    It took five years of pouring our money down a drain to finally prove to New Jersey liberals that it is not a smart idea to give laptops to seventh, eighth and ninth grade students to take home and use as they wish. It is amazing but true that people who work with children of middle school age don’t understand that kids will be… well kids, and they will generally not respect what is given to them by government. Five years ago the school system in Hoboken New Jersey gave out government (read taxpayer paid for) laptops to children who...

    Democrat Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) In introducing the nefarious Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Tax Act of 2014, known as the SWEET Act, Democrat Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) exposed for the American people the true insanity of modern liberalism. The bill (H.R. 5279), which seeks to "diminish the human and economic costs of diabetes, obesity, dental caries, and other diet related health conditions" would impose an additional tax of one cent on every 4.2 grams (about a teaspoon) of "caloric sweetener." Full text of the proposed bill can be found at Food Politics. DeLauro has this nation as tremendous service, although not...

All this time that climate skeptics are accused of being in the employ of “big oil” is nothing more than a projection of their own greed. Some excerpts: Over 7.9 BILLION in funding between these groups.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Fusion TV's Jorge Ramos that part of the reason Hamas hides rockets in schools and civilian areas is "Gaza is small." "I'm not a military planner but Hamas puts it's missiles, it's rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

    Officials have said that more than half of all children initially placed in shelters have gone on to be reunited with at least one parent already living in the United States, and 85 percent of all children have been placed with a close family member.
  • Thomas the Tank Engine had to shut the hell up to save children everywhere (Racist train!)

    There are many terrible children's programs through which parents must suffer during their child's young life. For every Sesame Street, there is an annoying Caillou or an acid-trippy Yo Gabba Gabba. But Thomas and Friends is – or was – the one show with enough subversive messages to make me turn it off for good. My son, now three-and-a-half years old, thankfully never never went through a manic train fascination like so many other children. But once in a while, he'd get a bug in his brain to watch Thomas, and every time I sat and watched with him, I...
